Hughes said he previously had contacted the townhome management company, Royster Property Management, about the squirrels and the hole in his home but he was told he had to have the squirrels removed before it could repair the hole. Royster Property Management president Benita Royster confirmed that Hughes called March 4 and said he was referred to a local animal trapper because company policy makes homeowners responsible for having wildlife removed. It would cost $175 for the trapper to come out plus $75 for each squirrel ensnared, she said.
